Links: Tech Edition

1. Bill Gates' bookshelf: The library makes for an interesting "to-read" list, with plenty of reviews written by Bill Gates.

2. Is Jeff Bezos the next Steve Jobs? Probably not, but you've got to admit that Amazon has become a lot more than an online retailer.
“A big piece of the story we tell ourselves about who we are is that we are willing to invent,” Mr Bezos told shareholders at Amazon’s annual meeting last year. “And very importantly, we are willing to be misunderstood for long periods of time.” 
That passion for invention has not deserted Mr Bezos, who last year filed a patent for a system of tiny airbags that can be incorporated into smartphones, to prevent them from being damaged if dropped.
